From A4M: “The Pellet Therapy Workshop is designed to provide practitioners with a comprehensive clinical knowledge of the therapy that is rapidly gaining traction and recognition, through the presentation of scientific reviews, case studies, and procedural training.”

Dr. Orbeck was a presenter at the conference, where he shared his experiences with pellets as a practitioner, and highlighted the benefits of the treatment. Dr. Orbeck also performed a live pellet insertion demonstration on the final day of the conference. Conference attendees learned the process for this procedure prior to their own hands-on training. They had an opportunity to practice subcutaneous pellet insertion using gel molds that emulated the texture of human tissue.

What is subcutaneous hormone pellet therapy?

The term subcutaneous refers to an application beneath the skin. Hormone pellets are inserted in the body through a small incision and dissolve at various rates based on blood flow and cardiovascular demands. The hormone pellets often contain a mixture of hormones, based on the needs of the patient.

Who is hormone pellet therapy for?

Hormone pellet therapy is a type of hormone replacement treatment typically used to help with symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, andropause, and aging.

What is the process and procedure for subcutaneous hormone pellet therapy?

At Regenerative Medical Institute, we analyze our patients’ hormones and other factors before treatment, to determine how the hormones impact each other. This ensures that the therapy is most effective and with the best outcomes. We believe in customized care for patients based on their metabolic and hormonal needs.

Prior to inserting the hormone pellets, the doctor will numb the skin and make a small incision with a medical device called a trocar. This procedure is typically done in the hip area. Once the incision has been made, the pellets are inserted through the trocar and closed with steri-strips.

Dr. Orbeck has years of experience and extensive training both as a provider and educator in this practice.

This procedure is painless, done in-office, and takes about 15 minutes to perform.
